§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether the export licence application form in respect of the Algardi Bust of Monsignor Cerri revealed the ownership as being a consortium of three art dealers; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Parkinson
Information given in support of an application for an export licence is regarded as given in confidence, but I can confirm that my Department is looking into the matter to which the hon. Member has referred.
